So we know that the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat has a starting price of $61,053with the manual transmission and $62,636 for the new 8-speed automatic transmission – including the annoying destination and Gas Guzzler fees. The 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat will come with the same suspension, the same brakes, the same supercharged 6.2L Hellcat Hemi V8 and many of the same performance oriented styling cues inside and out as the Challenger…but the 707 horsepower Charger offers obvious advantages in spaciousness. Also, the Charger SRT Hellcat only comes with the 8-speed automatic transmission and with all of this in mind, we come to our Question of the Week.
How much do you think that the 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat will cost?
Keep in mind that the smaller Challenger SRT Hellcat with the 8-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission starts at $62,363 (official MSRP per Frederick Scat Pack) and it seems to make sense that the Hellcat Charger pricing will start somewhere north of the Hellcat Challenger – but how far north?
I am hoping to see the 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat starting somewhere around $64,000 with destination and gas taxes factored in…and I want to know if you think that the 707hp Charger will cost more or less than my estimate?
